  • We stayed for a week it was an excellent location with lots to do in the area. The Campsite hosts were great and the campsites clean. I loved the wild roses when the wind rustled the flowers the scent...  more »
  • Ainsworth State Park at mile post 35 on the Historic Columbia River Highway is mostly a picnic spot. It is east of Horsetail Falls. And has about half a dozen picnic tables in a wooded area. There is ...  more »
  • This is one of the better parks I've been to. The tent sites were walk in sites but the walk is no more than 60 seconds from the parking area. The bathrooms and showers were very nice and comfortable....  more »

  • Relaxing. The spots are tight for 37ft unless you do pull through. Lots of trains stopping and starting all the time. Our 2 year loved the trains. Great park. No trails opened yet.
  • Lost a lot of luster with all the hiking trails closed due to the fire. Train noise all night. If you’re staying with kids, avoid the C-loop which is a walk-in camp site area making you haul everything in piece by piece.. with your rambunctious 2-year old. Pay the extra for a large RV spot which is also a lot closer to the bathrooms. Clean facilities, nice and helpful host, and close drive to other gorge sights.
  • Clean and nice bathrooms. Decently sized spots. Trails are still closed from fire last year. Nice small and cozy park. They have a cool amphitheater with projector stand and power aetup.
  • The sites are great with hookups and easy to pull through. The park itself is just fine however it is very near the train tracks and trains pass loudly by 24 hours a day. Don't expect to get any sleep!
  • You are better off asking a wet towel for information than calling the number listed. I called to ask if the trails were still open since the website said they were closed from the eagle creek fires... Since March. The human that answered the phone said they were still closed and I needed a reservation to get into the park. Strange comment since I didn't ask about camping, but I told her that there are walk up sites available and I had already talked to the reservation line. She put me on hold for 10 seconds then came back with a smart tone that yes there are walk up sites but I still need a reservation to access the park. I told her that was conflicting information and then she hung up on my face! Wow, great job! I won't be staying here for that reason.
